Read in October, 2009

The reason I listened to this 16 disc book is because of the spectacular and lyrical writing. Kallo's writing is the best I've read/listened to in a long time, and I hope she continues to write. If someone (student, writer) is looking for great voice in a story, this is it. I enjoyed the magical elements of the dead mothers and fathers. The storyline is weak but that's okay as this is more of a portrayal of people's lives than it is a story with a plot. Unfortunately this book is replete with stereotypes and I had to suspend disbelief throughout the book(ex.People in Nebraska are certainly not going to ignore a funny looking sky). The narrator did a splendid job on the different voices except for the children's voices. Luckily I could fast forward through the children's voice and not miss anything. But the voices of Larkin, Bonnie and Hope was very well-done.
